While one brother entertained Hollywood's A-list at a pre-Oscar bash in Beverly Hills for his art-house movie "Chocolat," the younger sibling was holed up in a lower Manhattan office poring over marketing details for the release of his family adventure film "Spy Kids." Bob Weinstein, the one who skipped the party, was making sure that the $36-million James-Bond-for-kids action feature would become another lucrative franchise for his 7-year-old Dimension Films.

In "Scream," the gory, goofy thriller that made horror movies hip again, a stalker is on the phone with his next victim. He gets right down to business. "What's your favorite scary movie?" he says with a nasty hiss. Neve Campbell, who plays the film's plucky teen heroine, tells him that horror films are a drag. "They're all the same," she says. "Some stupid killer stalking some big-breasted girl who can't act who's always running up the stairs when she should be going out the front door.

It came from Hollywood. It speaks fluent Hindi. And it's frightening Indians by the millions. In a watershed event for India's film industry (some of whose moguls are said to be among the scared), for the first time a major Hollywood motion picture--"Jurassic Park"--has been dubbed into Hindi and lavishly promoted in an attempt to attract a mass audience in this film-adoring nation. Steven Spielberg's box-office blockbuster is devouring Indian filmgoers' rupees with the speed and appetite of a velociraptor.

The teen-scream movie "I Know What You Did Last Summer" held on to the No. 1 spot at the weekend movie box office, but "Boogie Nights" stole the show in limited release, industry analysts said Sunday. Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson's film about the pornographic movie industry came in at No. 12 with an estimated gross of $1.9 million, but its $15,300 per-location average was nearly three times the $5,190 average for the No. 1 picture.

Following a bloody scene near the conclusion of "Scream 4," the character played by the horror franchise veteran Neve Campbell turns to series newcomer Emma Roberts and self-referentially cautions her to not mess with the original, though she uses cruder language to express her displeasure. The question this weekend is whether fans of the first three films also might feel that the new thriller tramples on the "Scream" legacy. It's been 11 years since "Scream 3" arrived in theaters, and franchises don't normally relaunch themselves after such a long hiatus.
